JERSEY CITY – Less than 24 hours after the city celebrated the annual National Night Out Against Crime, a man was shot and killed near the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive and Forrest Street, continuing a rash of homicides that began last month.

Six people were murdered in July.

The latest victim, a 21-year-old man, according to Hudson County Prosecutor spokesman Gene Rubino, was shot multiple times and was taken to Jersey City Medical Center where he was pronounced on arrival.

A possible motive for the crime has not been released.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Prosecutor’s Office at (201) 915-1345.
